“The Twin Paradox is one of the best science thrillers to come along since Andy Weir’s The Martian.” Chris Weitz, Screenwriter, Rogue One
With ten years passing for every three minutes on a remote stretch of Texas coast, planes fall out of the sky, evolved species are on the hunt, and people die inside one of the most vicious ecosystems ever grown–all a result of the government’s efforts to slow down time.
A lot can happen in ten years. That’s the point. Governments are always racing for supremacy, for scientific breakthroughs, for technological advantages–and these things take time.
Until something goes wrong.
With the grounded yet massive world building of READY PLAYER ONE, thrilling scientific questions of JURASSIC PARK, and the time-bending teen drama of BEFORE I FALL, Wachter’s THE TWIN PARADOX is a brilliantly plotted tale that is both intimate and massive, relentless yet deliberate, and explores the themes of self-acceptance, self-confidence, and natural selection in a richly hued and unforgettable world. Ultimately the eternal question of Nature versus Nurture is boiled down into this fast-paced thriller told over the course of five days and culminates in one single question:
Do we get to choose who we are?

“Are you ready to forget the future?”
From the readers:
“The kind of book hooking you and not letting you go until finding the truth, who lies, who dies, who loves, and in particular what was really going on there!”
“A narration on future…or past, on mankind’s addiction to an increasingly sophisticated technology or to a straightforward achieved happiness.”
“It set my mind in ‘motion’ and shaped an utterly unexpected vision over what our not too far future might look like.”
The futuristic novel “TENTORIA” raises questions on mankind’s hope of living into a concrete, non-virtual world away from the technological drug seeping deeper and deeper inside our body.

THE PERFECT WEAPON HAS A MIND OF ITS OWN.
Jarrod Hawkins is ushered into an underground facility, where a group of DARPA scientists use his body for biotechnological research. They use genetic editing, nanomachinery, neural rewriting, and next-generation armor to turn him into the most fearsome weapon on earth.

Will he become a perfect soldier, or the most fearsome vigilante the world has ever known?
